One chicken dish my kids never seem to tire of is my Buttery Cracker "Fried" Chicken. This dish is easy as pie, too! It takes only a few ingredients, and produces some of the juiciest, most tender chicken you'll ever try. Say goodbye to boring, dry chicken breasts. Sink your teeth into tender, buttery goodness.
The secret to the perfect, super-moist chicken in this dish? Rich & Creamy Melt Organic Buttery Spread!
Rich & Creamy MELT is a luscious butter improvement – an Organic ‘Butter 2.0®‘ – that is a delicious alternative to butter. Rich & Creamy MELT Organic cooks, bakes and melts just like butter, but with half the saturated fat and fewer calories.
Rich & Creamy MELT Organic is also soy free, gluten free, and dairy-free. Each serving of MELT is a rich source of the ‘good fats’ with an ideal balance of Omega-6 to Omega-3 ALAs (that are optimally metabolized with virgin coconut oil), and has 425 mg of Omega-3 ALA (or 26% RDA).
We've been using Melt Organic a lot lately, and we've been incredibly pleased. The flavor is amazing....Rich and buttery, with just the faintest hint of coconut. Don't worry: The very mild coconut flavor will not make your food taste odd. You won't even notice this unless you're tasting Melt Organic on its own.
Melt Organic is the perfect alternative to butter or margarine, since it does amazingly in cooking or baking, is easy to spread, and is chock full of nutrients and "good fats". You can get all the taste of butter without the guilt!
-1 lb Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts
-2 sleeves buttery crackers
-1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
-1/2 cup Rich & Creamy Melt Organic
Crush your crackers up into crumbs and add them to a gallon sized freezer bag. Then add your shredded cheese. Mix this up very well.
Melt your Rich & Creamy Melt Organic and set aside.
This is a VERY forgiving dish. If you feel your chicken isn't coated enough, just take some extra cracker/cheese mixture and plop it on top of each breast. It doesn't have to look pretty. You want to make sure your chicken is covered generously. This is where all the flavor is, folks!
Once the chicken is done, it should be tender, moist, and covered in a beautiful, crispy, buttery crust. I like to take any extra cracker bits from the baking dish and spoon them on top. The more topping, the better!
If you'd like to change things up a bit, feel free to add different seasonings to your cracker and cheese mixture, too! I've used Cajun Seasoning, and even Italian Herbs and Parmesan. This is a dish you can really get creative with!
